A legend at a young age
With his tremendous willingness to work, his fantastic way of moving and athletic characteristics, For Romance I OLD is for every rider a dream. More importantly, we see these qualities continuously recurring in his offspring, as a result of which the stunningly beautiful Oldenburg stallion already has a tremendous reputation at a young age. Before his tenth year there were already more than 30 For Romance approved sons and over 80 Premium mares registered in the studbooks and furthermore, amongst his offspring we find many competition winners and a whole series of auction stars.
Oldenburg stallion licensing 2011
The first memorable chapter in the For Romance story was written during the Oldenburg stallion licensing in 2011. The spectators gave a standing ovation for the son of the elegant Fürst Romancier who was declared Champion Stallion. For Romance was later approved by many German studbooks and started his training under the top Swedish rider Therese Nilshagen. Together they made their debut at Big Tour level at the beginning of 2019. During their first performance the 70%-barrier was immediately broken.
The modern-built For Romance is himself out of an exceptionally good nest. His dam Gesina (s. Sir Donnerhall I) produced four approved sons, including two champion stallions and one premie stallion. She also produced a number of outstanding mares. For Romance’s full-sister Fasine was Bundeschampionat winner as a six-year-old and was later sold at the P.S.I. auction for the unprecedented sum of 1.3 million Euros. His half-sister Fürstin Gesine took the Oldenburg Champion Mare title and his half-sister Mount St. John Best of All is competing at Small Tour-level.
For Romance’s granddam Gesine is an offspring of Blue Hors Don Schufro. As a result, we find the famous Donnerhall in dam Gesina twice in the third generation. This well-known Hanoverian bloodline is also the dam line of the legendary KWPN preferente stallion Voltaire.
